Jets reach broadcast agreement with TSN

Hey there, time traveller!
This article was published 21/7/2011 (2677 days ago), so information in it may no longer be current.

Hockey has found a new home on the radio dial in Winnipeg.

The Free Press has learned the Jets are expected to announce within the next few days that they have come to an agreement on a new broadcast agreement with The Sports Network and Bell Media that means the NHL’s return will be televised on TSN and broadcast on TSN radio.

That means that Sports Radio 1290 in Winnipeg – Bell Media also owns Fab 94.3 and Bob FM -- will likely now broadcast Jets games, effectively ending a long association between True North Sports and Entertainment and CJOB, which has held the radio rights for the Manitoba Moose for the past 15 years and the Jets prior to that.

Even though CJOB’s bid was apparently very lucrative, TSN’s package deal – the chance to have TV and radio games handled by the same partner – was said to be attractive to Jets’ management. TSN and Bell Media landed the English-language radio rights for the Montreal Canadiens last month and also hold the rights in Vancouver and Ottawa.

True North Senior Director, Corporate Communications Scott Brown said a broadcast announcement was coming soon, but preferred not to get into any details on the agreement.
